內容簡介 This is a story of adventure, friendship, and surprising discovery written by English author, Gillian Blackah-Kingsley, and beautifully illustrated by gifted artist, Nicola Hill. Deborah, a young honey bee, decides to leave the safety of the bustling nest at Bluebell Meadows to go in search of the "golden flowers" far, far away at the Big River. Little did she know that her decision would lead her into a life-changing adventure. On her journey, she meets new friends: a young eagle named Kite, who is afraid of heights, and Emeth, a beautiful butterfly. Their adventure unfolds into a tale of courage, true friendship, rescue, and family loyalty. Can Deborah and her friends overcome the challenges they encounter at the Big River? And will they be able to find Deborah's missing uncle and bring him safely back home? Deborah also discovers a surprising family secret that has been long-hidden for generations--a secret that must be revealed for the good of the whole colony. This engaging children's novel is the first in a series of books about Deborah and her friends and is bound to become a favorite for every reader, young and old!
